Operation Thunderjoy

Did you know that each year, THES works with our amazing community to bring holiday joy to the Thunderbird families who need it most? Through OPERATION THUNDERJOY, our Parent Support Specialist collects wishlists while parent volunteers find donors for hundreds of clothes, shoes, and gifts and make sure they’re appropriately wrapped, tagged and delivered.

Each year ThunderJoy selects 50 families to sponsor for the holiday. Students may be nominated through a teacher or THES staff or families may request to be sponsored. Nominations and requests do not automatically mean acceptance. The team must review selections. To better serve more families, we will select families who have not received assistance in the past. 

If you have any questions of you would like to volunteer to assist with organizing Operation Thunderjoy, please contact Ms. Dianna Perez at 512.841.0855 or email at
